locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.

saw, david, that law enforcement is asking the public for help in the form of videos, photos, anything. do you have any sense of what kind of response they're getting? >> they're getting a great response. there are hundreds and thousands of pictures and videos that were taken. you know, the social media since 9/11 has expanded. everybody has phones and cameras now and so this is going to taken a enormous amount of work if they're trying to go through these. this could be very complicated. some people suggest it indicates that they don't have a lot of leads otherwise. but certainly that's one thing that they're looking for. >> brown: speaking of 9/11, i wonder just tell -- give us a sense of the mood there today and maybe you can compare it to what happened after 9/11. >> absolutely. i remember 9/12 and 9/12 was a day much like today: brilliant sky, warm. in 2001 on 9/11 boston was a crime scene that had no evidence, there were no victims here and so it had been robbed in that sense. today just the opposite. a terrible number of victims and a lot of devastation at that scene. >> brown:

background is in the law and, actually, he began his background in law at his family's kitchen table. his father, rex lee, was a law school dean, assistant u.s. attorney general and solicitor general for ronald reagan. senator lee is a graduate of brigham young university and byu law school, was a law clerk for judge dean benson of the u.s. district court of the district of utah and then judge sam alito's clerk when he was at the u.s. court of appeals for the 3rd circuit. he served as an attorney -- assistant u.s. attorney general in utah and general counsel to the governor of utah before turning to private practice. and then in 2010, that important election year, he decided to run united yorking out an -- knocking out an incumbent u.s. senator and a party-endorsed candidate to become the primary candidate and win the general election. senator lee is now on the judiciary committee, serves as ranking member of the antitrust competition policy and consumer rights subcommittee. he also sevens on the armed service -- serves on the armed services committee and the joint economic committee and
, president obama praising law enforcement in trackinging down the suspect, late last night after authorities announced they captured their man, this is what the president had to say. >> boston police and state police and local police across the come mop wealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we have closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house for us. what's happening at the white house today? >> no events on the president's schedule but i can tell you behind the scenes, i have been told by administration officials, the president will be in contact with his national security team when necessary to monitor the ongoing developments in this investigation. you remember when president obama spoke last night, craig, he said there are a number of questions that need to be anticipated, included what motivated these two young men to take these hape noeinous action and of course did they have accomplices? that is the question everybody wants answered now. i don't
. they plastered their pictures distributed by law enforcement among themselves and meanwhile, they have identified two potential suspects captured on surveillance videos taken before the deadly blast. the part about officials having identified two suspects turns out to be correct but the two young men were not those suspects. fbi assistant john miller was quick to debunk the photos like the high school kid in the "new york post" showing how this latest journal malfeasance came to be. >> i've seen a couple pictures on the internet and in the paper today. until we hear from authorities, should we discount pictures floating around all over the place? >> those are not pictures that will be released today by authorities. >> just wondering. >> here's what happens. those pictures were on the internet yesterday morning and they started going viral in deficit sites and difference infusion places pick those up, we'll take that information and then it ends up leaking back to the newspaper and comes out in one big circle. >> pictures start on the internet and law enforcement officials pass them internally and
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
poured out of their homes to applaud law enforcement. suspect number 1, tamerlan tsarnaev, killed earlier in the day after a wild shootout. we've got jam packed hour today. adam housley is outside beth israel hospital where suspect number 2 is under guard. catherine herridge is following the investigation. here in studio is america's mayor, mayor rudy guiliani. first let's go to adam in boston. bring us up to date on the very latest. >> yes. we're hearing from the f.b.i. there may be a statement coming out at some point in the next couple of minutes. we haven't heard from them since last night. we heard about the suspect brought here in certificates condition. i'll step away. you can see the police presence is here at the hospital in boston. it's been here all night. every exit and entrance is covered. the floor where the suspect number 2 dzhokhar tsarnaev is located has police presence as well, as you might imagine outside his room and on the hospital floor. anybody going in, coming out of this hospital has to have their bag checked, as well as their i.d we also have the picture from the
procedure when the macials take control. before that, it was local law enforcement and the fbi. so the marshalls will be in charge of him, until he is well enough to leave here. once that happen, he will fly out via helicopter, like whitey bowlser did. they feel like that's the best way to take him to his federal holding cell. how that went down today with the arraignment in his room, the federal magistrate was there, a public defender was there. he mostly answered with nods. obviously, he didn't speak a lot. that could be because there are reports of an injury to his neck. the fbi said neck/head region and to his leg and hand. he in serious conditionful he answered questions by nodding. he did say one word, when they asked him if he could afford a defense team, he said no. that's basic lite only words he really did say. the judge asked if he understood what was happening. his miranda rights were read to him. they decided to read him his miranda rights. those were given to him today as well. the security here is very tight. in fact, what is interesting is, he potentially might get
, you use a mass shooting to talk about gun safety laws. that's the no-no. that's exploitation. here we can talk about maybe changes to the fbi right away. maybe we should, of course. we can talk about stopping immigration reform. it is really remarkable. and now do you have this growing course of conservatives saying let's load this down. leadership however, is hanging on. boehner yesterday on fox news said it may slow down by a couple of days but immigration reform is something we have to do because they know if they don't do it, they're in trouble demographically. they're going to keep this train rology but you do have those conservatives using it as an opportunity. >> bill: they have a lot of support around the country and the talk radio hosts around the country. they derailed it before. they might be able to do it again. igor volsky here, managing editor of think progress talking about the issues of the day with you. 1-866-55-press. join the conversation. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. you know who is comi
the photos of the two young men they plastered across the front page of being distributed by law enforcement officials themselves and reports that meanwhile officials have identified two potential suspects who were captured on surveillance videos taken shortly before the deadly blast. the part about officials having identified two suspects turns out to be correct but the two young men featured in the front page were not the suspects. they explained this morning how this latest it ration of journalistic mall feez sans came to be. >> i seen a couple of pictures on the internet and in the paper today. until we see picture actress the authorities should we discount the pictures floating around all over the place. >> those are not the pictures that will be released today by the authorities. here's what happens. those pictures were on the internet yesterday morning and they started to go viral on different sites and different intelligence fusion centers around the country picked them up and post them in to bulletins and say nif o any law enforcement agencies that can name these people we will take
away what he say. i talked to one law enforcement official that has a little built of concern. and the concern is this, that we are finding more and more about his older brother, who obviously went overseas. there's questions about how he trained and he was somebody who was a manipulative personality. withwe are learning how he tookr of his wife, and by some reports pushed her very strongly to convert etch obviously is somebody, as we are hearing reports about his nature you are, was someone who was somewhat aggressive. the worry about a couple law enforcement folks i have spoken to is the younger brother may not have as much information as the older brother would have had. that's something they will learn as we go forward. but now that he's been mirandized, that changes everything as. we. >> adam, thank you. after the fire fight and after running over his brother, he took off. a homeowner sent swarms of police race to go a backyard and suddenly bomber 2, dzhokhar tsarnaev, was surrounded. listen to the dramatic reports leading to his capture. >> a report from watertown of 67
theory? >> well, i think it's out there. i think it's something of a society and certainly the law enforcement and the intelligence community, they clearly know that this is not a hoax. this is not something that somebody is coming up and developing and so forth. those organizations and the type of organizations that are really fertilizing terrorist activities, it's real. and it's real for the united states. i think we've gotten a piece of that here in the last few weeks here, based on the activities that we've taken place there. if you talk to many of the law enforcement people and so forth, they will look back and say, "this had to be an operation by these two young men that was planned and it was worked over years, not over just a few weeks or so, over months and over years that they have been there". >> chief shaffer, a lot of people are saying this, there are 100 agents or more looking for this cell. these two guys couldn't have done it. they are amateurs, what is your take on this? are we going to wake up and find out there was a much bicker conspiracy. >> if you look at what
. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this whole ordeal started monday with the bombing attack at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people were killed, more than 170 injured. the suspect's older brother died early friday morning following a shootout with police. the two men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer, 26-year-old sean collier, who was sitting in his patrol car. now, police hope that the surviving suspect will be able to give them some critical information about a possible motive and whether any more people were involved. nbc's katy tur has been
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
is a brilliant law enforcement person but i always think the law enforcement person should be the head of the enforcement digs not a person at the top of the sec which sets a broader agenda which regulation is big thing that is unw problems she will face. let's hope she brings its up but i'm doubtful and this stuff will keep going on. lori: this happen so fast, in the blink of an eye and then recouped it. would this happen in the open outcry system? >> probably not they would say don't throw the baby out with the bath water. there is efficiencies when you hit a button to bypass a human being. i will tell you someone coming on here talking about jon corzine is not talking about jon corzine now which is little strange. melissa: that is the main story. you came here to talk about that. >> i'm just saying, specialists did prevent the wild volatility and that was a good thing. here is what we know about corzine if few minutes we have, i will throw this out there, he is not yet, he has been sued by louie freed, the bankruptcy trustee. i believe negligence was the word that freed threw around
today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word from the hospital or are they staying somewhat silent on that? >> reporter: absolutely silent, alex. they're basically saying ask the fbi, ask the police about that, and they are saying nothing as well. it's a very tight lid on top of any information about him so far today. that could change perhaps, but you have to understand and, of course, you do, that this is a very, very delicate and sensitive situation and so it seems unlikely that the doctors are going to tell us a lot about what his condition is, par
this bureaucracy of government. it was written by harvard law professor cass sunstein, and you were a former insider with the obama administration as the head of the office of information & regulatory affairs. let me ask you, how do we fix this big, bad, complex thing we call government? - one thing we can do, and we've started to do, and we should do a lot more of, is make it simpler. if you look at the best consumer products now, they are often ipads and tablets, and even a child can use them. they have a lot of complicated ingredients, the people who produce them did a lot of complex work, but to interact with them is simpler. - you were talking about, we could actually save something like 9 billion hours of time wasted on government paperwork? - the obama administration started to get rid of millions, in fact, tens of millions, in fact, probably we're over a hundred million now. but we can do a lot more to take away those hours, and that can free up people to do their real work and spend time with their families. - is this, in fact happening? because the subtitle of your book, you say it
